JUSThink Project

The JUSThink project aims is to improve the computational thinking skills of children, by exercising algorithmic reasoning with and through graphs, where graphs are posed as a way to represent, reason with and solve a problem. It targets at fostering children’s understanding of abstract graphs through a collaborative problem-solving task mediated by a humanoid robot (QTrobot). JUSThink also serves as a platform to develop and evaluate the robot’s artificial intelligence in terms of understanding the behaviors of children including their actions on the platform, as well as their speech activity, etc.
